The following new features and enhancements were last updated on April 18, 2023.
Enhanced Award Management and Stewardship Management pages to work with assistive technology to meet WCAG 2.0 AA accessibility standards. Removed Keyboard traps, revised headings, enhanced question modals, and resized text without the loss of functionality.
Qualified to Apply prevents ineligible applicants from applying to opportunities in which they are not qualified. Ineligible applicants will not see the Apply button for opportunities in which they do not qualify if this feature is enabled. Expanded the feature to enable system admins to apply the feature en masse on opportunity portfolios.
System Administrators can now edit the Customer UID field, which is the primary mechanism used to merge duplicate records. This allows administrators greater flexibility and permissions needed to invalidate incorrect records and preserve applications, reference requests or reviews on correct accounts without Support intervention.
By leveraging components of Blackbaud’s next-generation user experience (UX) framework, the solution is being modernized to be consistent with Blackbaud products. Additionally, these improvements ease navigation within some of the most highly utilized areas of the product including the Omnibar, hover selectors, Cycle Management Audit, Bulletins, Donor Cover Letters and the Stewardship Dashboard.
With enhancements to Award Mode, administrators can now view archived opportunities separate from active applications and filter opportunities.
The Omnibar is now mobile responsive for administrators to navigate functionality of the solution while using devices.
Archived opportunities more than 365 days old are moved to cold storage with a frozen date associated with them. To prevent auto match opportunities from losing applications, General Applications do not move to cold storage if there is an auto match opportunity that has an end-date within the General Application’s archival time frame.
To improve the user experience and provide greater functionality clarification, the Apply Now Button has been removed from Stewardship Standalone opportunities. Stewardship Standalone requires admins invite students into opportunities to submit an impact statement as Standalone sites do not allow students to directly apply for opportunities. The visibility of this button caused confusion and did not function as users would expect in providing information to impact statements.
The Minimum Word Count feature only applies to text-based fields, instead of applying to fields relying on file uploads.
To ease data display, fund information is no longer shown as persistent data without delineation between quarters of financial information.
